Jeb Bush may have a lot of advantages as the 2016 race begins – money, name recognition, a network of supporters. But Mr. Bush has a problem with conservatives. How bad is it? Compare his standing to that of 2012 Republican nominee Mitt Romney.

Kentucky's gubernatorial race could be an interesting test case for the tea party if Matt Bevin's win in the GOP primary holds. The question is whether a tea-party candidate can win in a race with big turnout and intensive focus from the media.

To many party leaders and the donors who write big campaign checks, Hillary Clinton and Jeb Bush are the giants of their parties’ presidential fields. But while the two candidates recently posted big fundraising totals, there are signs that voters are taking a dimmer view of them over time.

Political reaction to the nuclear deal negotiated with Iran has been swift, with the 2016 Republican presidential field coming out strongly against the agreement.Former Florida Gov. Jeb Bush called it “deeply flawed.” Wisconsin Gov. Scott Walker said it would be remembered as “one of America's worst diplomatic failures.” Former surgeon Ben Carson said it was a “historic mistake.”Those sentiments may be heartfelt, but they also mesh closely with w...

Many Democrats hope the Supreme Court strikes down state laws prohibiting same-sex marriage. But heading in to 2016, Republicans may have the most to gain at the ballot box from such a ruling, particularly in America's close-in suburbs.

As Hillary Clinton begins her 2016 campaign, one of the big questions around her is the size and shape of her base. How will her supporters compare with those of President Barack Obama or her husband, former President Bill Clinton?

I'm a married father of two (a girl and a boy) who still misses Motown, particularly the Tigers and Red Wings. When I'm not working I am trying to herd children, making time to actually hang out with my wife or play hockey.
